If the U.S. government follows through on a threat to double tariffs on Chinese goods, China will retaliate by imposing tariffs on $60 billion worth of U.S. products, including several dental products, the Chinese government announced on August 3.

China is preparing to add duties ranging from 5% to 25% on more than 5,000 U.S. goods. Both professional and personal oral healthcare items from the U.S. are on China's current tariff list, including the following:

  • Dental drills and dental adhesive plaster at 25% duty
  • Toothpaste, toothbrushes, floss, mouthwash, and sodium fluoride at 20% duty
  • Dental chairs, dental cements, and dental wax or styling cream at 10% duty
  • Dentures and xylitol at 5% duty
